Still bemused and confused by which Islands?

Jump to last reply

If you had 9 or 10 days to dedicate to visiting the islands, which would you chose taking into account both ambiance and ease of transition?

to summarize the thinking so far....

Thanks to all who have helped me so far on our plans for next summer in Greece and Turkey. As we have played with the itinerary I realized that usually we only do close to home beaches - and I am intrigued by the idea of enjoying the classic Greek island experience as portrayed in novels and film - quaint villages, white sand beaches, clear waters, etc. On the other hand we are always pulled by history so I find myself looking at Rhodes, Crete and Corfu - but then wondering if they are too far apart and whether we might enjoy something smaller. Also still contemplating Samos as a transition to Turkey.
In a recent trip report (Stanbr I think or travelerjan?) you mentioned that Crete, Naxos and Paros are your favorites...would you mind elaborating why?

others...your advice is most appreciated.
